Transport and Fate of Cryptosporidium and Other Pathogens in Groundwater Systems

 
Price: £11  

This review shows that there is little information on the fate and transport of pathogens in UK aquifers below the soil zone. Cryptosporidium migration into the unsaturated zone will be attenuated by the soil, but pathways which allow soil- zone bypass are common on UK aquifer outcrops. Once oocysts have entered the subsurface survival for long periods seems likely.
